It is for the best, I have what I want from the 2009 tour and this could go to someone that missed out. I'm going to release it when I take off for the day, which will be about 5:30pm. A heads up so everyone has a fair chance at it.

5:30pm EST?

For the person bitching about Mitch's cart yesterday, I think this BS, if true, is far worse.

I don't want this, and didn't try for it ... but, I just think these "hold it in my cart for a day" games are silly. Pity the people that were actually at the site during the sale that have no idea that there are indeed, more left.

He had to clear it with his partner, have a little sympathy. Judging by his screenname, he may have received a severe beating if he went through with it without permission.

Some people should stay lurkers. There is really no good that can come from the post other than aggravating people.

I like the security of BK's cart system, and I benefitted from it on the Toronto 09 drop when the glitch hit, but this infinite cart thing is not for the greater good, imo.

i love the security of the cart system, but there should be a limit of 10-15 minutes or something, then it's dropped from your cart, kind of like concert tickets

Welcome out of the ebeans shadows mistermeek! Thank you for being considerate enough to give people a heads up. You could have just dropped it randomly and let the vultures have at it.

Cheers to you! :pint:

While I don't like the never ending cart, I do really like the ability to browse around a bit and pick up other items...Maybe a limited time limit in cart? Allows me to go back and buy older less popular stuff and save on shipping...

The never ending cart has saved me when the Mancherster/Toronto 09 were released and couldn't check out until a couple of hours later.
